PETER WEHNER’S CRITICISM OF TRUMP IN THE NEW YORK TIMES IS DONE TO GET ATTENTION FOR HIMSELF

As Donald Trump edges closer to the Republican endorsement for President, his party naysayers, who up to this point have vociferously endeavored to stay relevant by criticizing him, are closer to having a plate of crow for dinner. Before they sit down at the table, they are doing some last second crowing to try to justify their heretofore objections to Trump’s ascendancy to the top Republican spot. Included in this slowly diminishing list of Dodo Birds is Peter Wehner, the New York Times new best friend, if only because they share a mutual dislike for Trump. The liberal paper likes it when Wehner calls Trump “unqualified,” “ignorant,” “naive,” “erratic,” “unprincipled,” “narcissistic”, “unstable,” “vindictive” “solipsistic” and other derogatory terms. Of course, if Wehner, a self-professed conservative, didn’t say these things about Trump, his writings would not be accepted in the paper. He says these things, much like a shock jock ( i.e., Howard Stern), because he wants attention and this is the only way he knows how to get it. Otherwise, he would remain absent and irrelevant on the political and social scene. When Trump wins the endorsement, he shouldn’t even invite this odd duck to the dinner.
